In a poignant display of respect, scouts from across Royal Greenwich came together throughout the district to commemorate Remembrance Day. The variety of activities undertaken by different groups showcased a collective commitment to honouring the event.
Some scouts made their way to Westminster Abbey’s field of remembrance whilst others gathered around remembrance-themed campfires.
Scouts joined in local church ceremonies, whilst others represented the district at the Garrison Church.
The echoes of footsteps and the rustle of poppy-adorned uniforms marked the parade through Eltham High Street. Scouts from over 9 groups marched together.
Meanwhile Memorials throughout the district played host to scout services.
These moments of reflection reinforced the scouts’ understanding of the historical significance of Remembrance Day and their role in preserving its memory.
As we reflect on this Remembrance Day, Royal Greenwich Scouts remind us that remembrance is not just a tradition but a dynamic, collective effort to honour history and uphold the values of unity and service.
